From Zero to Deployment: Vagrant, Ansible, Capistrano 3 to deploy your Rails Apps to DigitalOcean automatically (part 0)


tl;dr

Use Cucumber to start us off on our Infrastructure as code journey.

 

Introduction

Part 1 of this blog series demonstrates some Ansible playbooks to create a VM ready for Rails deployment using Vagrant. This is a prequel in the sense that, as a staunch believer in all that’s xDD, I should have started this blog with some Cucumber BDD!
Please forgive my misbehaving and accept my apologies with a few Cucumber scenarios as penance. Hey, it’s never too late to write tests…

The Cucumber Scenarios

As BDD artefacts, they should speak for themselves; write to me if they don’t as it means they were not clear enough!

 

Feature: App deploys to a VM
Background:
Given I have a vm with ip "33.33.33.33"
Scenario: Building the VM
When I provision users on it
Then I can log on to it as the "deploy" user
And I can log on to it as the "root" user
And I can log on to it as the "vagrant" user
Then I remove the VM
Scenario: Adding Linux dependencies
When I provision users on it
When I run the "webserver" ansible playbook
And I log on as "deploy", there is no "ruby"
But "gcc" is present
Then I remove the VM
Scenario: Installing mySQL
When I provision users on it
When I run the "dbserver" ansible playbook
Then I log on as "deploy", then "mysql" is installed
And I can log on as "deploy" to mysql
Then I remove the VM

The Cucumber Steps

Given(/^I have a vm with ip "(.*?)"$/) do |ip|
@ip = ip
output=`vagrant up`
assert $?.success?
end
When(/^I provision users on it$/) do
output=`vagrant provision web`
assert $?.success?
end
Then(/^I can log on to it as the "(.*?)" user$/) do |user|
output=`ssh "#{user}@#{@ip}" exit`
assert $?.success?
end
When(/^I run the "(.*?)" ansible playbook$/) do |playbook|
output=`ansible-playbook devops/"#{playbook}".yml -i devops/webhosts`
assert $?.success?
end
When(/^I log on as "(.*?)", there is no "(.*?)"$/) do |user, program|
@user = user
output = run_remote(user, program)
assert !$?.success?
end
When(/^"(.*?)" is present$/) do |program|
output = run_remote(@user, program)
assert $?.success?
end
Then(/^I log on as "(.*?)", then "(.*?)" is installed$/) do |user, program|
output = run_remote(user, program)
assert $?.success?
end
Then(/^I remove the VM$/) do
output=`vagrant destroy -f`
assert $?.success?
end
Then(/^I can log on as "(.*?)" to mysql$/) do |user|
`ssh "#{user}@#{@ip}" 'echo "show databases;" | mysql -u "#{user}" -praindrop'`
end
def run_remote(user, program)
`ssh "#{user}@#{@ip}" '"#{program}" --version'`
end
